As we age, there’s a terrible temptation to think in terms of outliving: our enemies, witnesses to our humiliations, those who know secrets. There are two problems with the mentality, both serious.
- The longer you live, the shorter-lived your pleasure with each outlived person/mistake.
- The more you adopt this mentality, the more the world looks forward to the years without you.
Have a good weekend, and think positive.
